Quicken Loans Kicks Off Partnership With Habitat for Humanity
September 13, 2019
For the fourth consecutive year, the Quicken Loans Community Fund is kicking off its partnership with Habitat for Humanity by volunteering with local Habitat organizations during Quicken Loans Neighborhoods Weeks in Cleveland, Phoenix and Charlotte. In support of Habitat’s Neighborhood Revitalization program, Quicken Loans team members will help build safe and decent homes in their local communities, and will also improve neighborhoods in the cities they call home.
“At Quicken Loans, we know the power of a stable home in an inclusive, thriving and resilient community. This is why we invest in, and volunteer with, Habitat for Humanity to build and improve neighborhoods where our team members live, work and play,” said Laura Grannemann, vice president of strategic investments for the Quicken Loans Community Fund, the philanthropic arm of Quicken Loans. “This is an event that our team members look forward to all year long, as they appreciate the ability to work alongside members of the community to make a lasting impact.”
The Quicken Loans Community Fund will be providing $500,000 for project grants and organizational support. Additionally, the company’s team members are volunteering with Habitat Central Arizona, Habitat of Charlotte and Greater Cleveland Habitat to build alongside Habitat homeowners to revitalize their communities through an event the company calls Quicken Loans Neighborhoods Week. Projects include the construction of a Habitat home, as well as critical repairs to homes in the area. Additionally, Quicken Loans team members will be working on public space projects, including building community gardens, painting fences and trash cleanup.
Quicken Loans team members have worked and volunteered with local Habitat organizations since 2016. Volunteers have built or repaired homes alongside Habitat homeowners, laid down community gardens for neighbors to grow their own food and plants, and built playhouses for a local school.
